Voices singing, let's be jolly

What all's happening on my humor blog? More MST3K fan fiction, of course, and some miscellaneous silliness. See:

So that's fun! Now let's check in at the Turner-Dodge House and lots of Christmas trees.


More of the photography club tree. Remember slides? Look at that. Slides!


And one last little bit more of the tree, with a gloriously cheap Kodak camera as ornament. We found information about when the club was holding seminars but never had the chance to act on that.


An actual working office for the Turner-Dodge House, the rare room without a Christmas tree.


The second-floor bathroom, which has an excellent tiny-hexagonal-tile floor and bathtubs they really don't want you to start using.


But I guess it's a working bathroom since it has those great little cubby-holes for soap that you remember from grandmom's house.


Capital Area Human Society's doghouse tree, with ornaments showing pictures of pets.


And now we're just getting into the funny trees, as for example tis Elvis one.


And here's a space tree; I think this was sponsored by the hands-on Children's museum.


The bed in that room with the space tree and the Elvis tree and all. It's got drums and drum components and I don't know how much of that is the room's ordinary theme.


Here's ``Santa's Airship Rescue'' above a tiny little tree.


Couple of more trees in one of the bedrooms; one's making a bid for peace.


Looking out the north window onto the lawn and the neighborhood.
